Travel Tips for Meersburg

Meersburg and the Flower Island of Mainau

by sailornappo

"The Meersburg castle"

Meersburg’s old Castle is set on a hilltop overlooking the town.

It was built within the walls of an old Carolingian palace in the 16th century.

The claim to fame with this building is that it is Germany’s oldest inhabited
castle, since its structure goes back to the 7th century.

Today the castle has finely restored rooms, including the state apartments,
and an excellent collection of weapons.

"Boat-trip to the Island"

From Meersburg (and other towns nearby) Ferries make the short trip across Lake Constance to the Flower Island of Mainau.

"The Flower Island of mainau"

The Island is located in Lake Constance (in German called Bodensee) a large lake on the Rhine between Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

The freshwater lake sits at 395 m above sea level and is Central Europe's third largest. It is 63 km long, and at its widest point, nearly 14 km. It covers approximately 571 km² (208 mi²).
The greatest depth is 252 m in the middle of the eastern part

The island belongs to the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation, an entity created by the late Lennart, Count Bernadotte of Wisborg, formerly a Prince of Sweden and Duke of Småland - a historical province in southern Sweden.
It is one of the main tourist attractions of Lake Constance and a short Ferry ride away from Meersburg.

Meersburg, An impressive place

"Had a very nice meal there"

Very impressive.

"And get acquainta with a poetess"

--Annette von Droste-H¡§¹lshoff
On the Tower
I stand on the tower's high balcony,
The shrieking starling streaks by.
And like a maenad I let the storm
Rumple and tear at my hair.
Oh my wild comrade and crazy boy,
I long to embrace you and match
My strength against yours, two steps from the edge
and wrestle with you to the death.
And as I look down at the beach, the waves,
Are like hunting dogs at play,
Foaming and bellowing they rave,
And up leaps the glistening spray.
How gladly I'd jump to be among
That raging pack of hounds
And follow through the coral woods
The walrus with merry sound.
And further I see a pennant blow
Bold a battle banner.
And the prow of the ship goes up and down,
As I watch from my airy rampart.
Oh, I want to stand in that fighting ship
And grasp the steering wheel.
And over the spitting, hissing deep,
Glide as the seagull will.
If I were a hunter, out in the wild,
If I were a bit of a soldier.
If I were only, at least and simply a man,
Then heaven would counsel and hold me.
But now I must sit like a good little girl,
Sweet, delicate and fair.
And I have to hide to let the wind,
Blow freely through my hair.
